    whenever anyone runs into a problem, check to see if blued is running. if it is not, even though Bluetooth appears "on", then that will explain why things aren't working correctly.

    I will remember this tip also, but I just looked at Activity Monitor, and I have no process called "blued" running.  I just checked my keyboard, which is working fine, and I'm using my keyboard to type this response.

    I meant to say my MOUSE and keyboard.

    did you filter for ALL processes, or My processes? it only shows up in the ALL list.

    Bingo.  It shows up under all processes, as you mentioned. Thanks for your help-it looks like we're all back to normal again.

    Well, I had noticed that my iMac didn't wake up since I upgraded to Lion, unless I clicked the Magic Mouse, but this afternoon, I couldn't wake it up either with the mouse nor the wireless keyboard. Neither device  responded. I had to shut down the iMac and start it over again.

     

    There is definitely something wrong with the bluetooth in this release.

    I wrote that enabling the 'Allow Bluetooth to wake up the computer' didn't work, but I only enabled it for my account and not for my girlfriend's account. Yesterday I noticed that the problem only occurred when she had used the computer for the last time. It seems this is not a system-wide setting. I now enabled the option for her account and everything seems to work fine. Hope it stays that way...

    great! I thought that was a system-wide preference, but sounds like it is not.

    I am having similar issues here wiht Lion.  It sometimes just disconnects the bluetooth and since I have a keyboard, mouse and track pad it leaves me unnable to use the computer.  The only work around is to connect the wired mouse and connect the blue

    tooth or re-etart the computer.  I guess it happens when it is in sleep mode.

    did you ensure the "Allow Devices to wake this computer" checkbox is enabled? if it IS and you are still seeing this issue we can debug further.

    In my case, yes, the "Allow Devices to wake this computer" was selected. And the bluetooth devices were waking the computer up until that single time when everything was frozen. And it has been working since then.

    Yes I did.

     

    Actually once it would not connect at startup.

    Let me join this thread...

     

    I have a same problem.  My magic mouse won't work after waking from sleep.  It will only work again after I disconnect and reconnect the magic mouse.  Boy this is frustrating.

     

    I believe this bluetooth issue along with wifi issue are the two most known and common bugs that are found after upgrading to Lion.

    As I think I've mentioned previously, waking from sleep is not a problem for me; mine is a kernel panic every few days, followed by the loss of the mouse and keyboard.  Once I reboot, stop and start the keyboard, etc., all is well.

     

    This seems such a wide-spread problem with BT that Apple surely is aware of it.  I read a couple of weeks ago the rumor  that the .1 release was due any moment, and that the .2 release had been seeded to developers. I don't know if either was correct,  at the time, but if the .1 release was that close, I wonder if it could have been pulled to make a major re-do on the wifi and BT problems?

     

    My wifi is fine, but I can't send a link to a web page via Mail because Safari says I have no mail app installed, which I do and it works fine in or outgoing with multiple accounts.  More weirdness from .0,  I guess.

    My problem is the mouse is very unresponsive and slow (jumpy). When I use a USB mouse all is fine. It happens on Safari and Adobe the most but when I am in the Finder is just fine. The jumpiness is when the mouse is on programs. This is very sloppy and makes me realize that Lion is not fit for bluetooth.
